Tom White, Coordinator of Educational Outreach, Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Who was Anne Frank? This presentation frames Anne Frank’s experiences as one of growth and introspection through her diary. How does Anne's voice still remain, as she hoped, "useful" as we face the challenges of today? How do we resist evil while maintaining our moral core? This presentation also traces the fate of those hiding in the Secret Annex. How can we draw on the example of the rescuers and of the Franks themselves to honor Anne's April 1944 wish, "If only I can be myself"?

The presentation is part of Etz Hayim Synagogue’s Adult Continuing Education Program, Hot Topics and Cool Contemporary Stuff. There is no charge, but donations are encouraged to allow us to continue with these and other programs. Please visit for a complete listing of Hot Topics.
